Isaac Howarth was an ancestor of mine.  I have extensively researched his origins and have to date (March 2012) drawn a blank.  Lancaster Assizes’ indictments held at National Archives in London, where I have seen the originals, refer to his his being "of Heaton Norris".  However, this cannot be substantiated by Heaton Norris baptismal records.  Such wording, regularly used in these indictment documents, is in reality a reference to the place at which the crime occurred - not the origin of the accused.  Howarth’s modus operandi (burgling bleaching crofts) took place at several locations in the periphery of Manchester.  Other indictments refer to his being of those other locations.  His origins are still unknown but probably lie in Lancashire.  Steve Mangan (London)
